Four members of our research team are headed to the 2019 Astrobiology Science Conference to be held in Seattle WA, June 24 - 28th.
Grad student Tessa Fisher will give a talk titled, "Atmospheric Chemical Reaction Network Topology as an Indicator of Disequilibrium: Implications for Biosignature Detection", abstract here.
Grad student Dylan Gagler will present a poster titled, "Investigating the role of oxidation-reduction reactions in biochemical network structure across levels of organization", abstract here.
Assistant Research Prof. Hyunju Kim will present a talk titled, "Characteristic Chiral Nature of Hierarchical Biochemical Networks", abstract here.
Professor Sara Walker will present two talks. The first is part of the plenary on 'Frontiers in Biosignature Science' on "Statistical Frameworks for Life Detection". The second is titled, "Intelligence as a Planetary Process", abstract here.
In addition, lab alumni Dr. Harrison Smith (now at the Earth-Life Science Institute at Tokyo Tech) will present work he did while on our team, presenting a poster titled "Assessing the Viability of Biochemical Networks Across Planets", abstract here.
ASU Alum Amanda Truitt also leads a poster titled "A Flexible Bayesian Framework for Assessing Habitability with Joint Observational and Model Constraints", abstract here, with Walker as a co-author.
